I went through interviewing series with two companies, X and Y, at the same period of time.
I reached and passed the final round with company X, and they issued me an offer with a 48 hours signing due date (10 days ago). I also reached the final round with company Y, but interview with them was scheduled for 10 days after I received the offer from company X. Company Y offered 150% compensation as of company X's compensation so it took my attention.
I explained the situation to company X, and I nicely asked to extend the signing due date. They refused and I ended up rejecting politely with a follow up request.
I did not end up passing the final round with company Y. I would like to follow up with company X in hopes that they re-issue the offer.
What should I say in my email to them to appropriately explain the situation indicating that I would accept their offer if they resend it?
Bonus Q: Is it ok to signal that it is in our both interest that the re-issued offer is to be after the corona crisis?
